Hot Air Balloons

I think the free papers with this month's Making Cards magazine may be my favourite ones ever. I love the colours and the hot air balloons so I decided to make a few cards using mainly the papers ad toppers.

This one is my favourite. I used DI Victorian Velvet around the edges and added some raffia lace and bunting cut using a Memory Box die. 

I used an Embosslicious embossing folder and sanded Core'dinations along with a Craftwork Cards sentiment anfd Memory Box clouds die with DCWV gauze paper.

It's the Memory Box cloud die and DCWV gauze paper again along with a Satmposaurus stamped sentiment.

A different fold for this one along with a Memory Box hot air balloon die.

Lastly I used an old embossing border die and some star punches.
